Spraider et al. Improved ventilation and lung recruitment in flow-controlled ventilation (FCV) compared to pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) – A prospective, randomized porcine study. Abstract presented at ESICM 2019 and AIC 2019.

Evone In a randomized porcine study, Spraider and colleagues demonstrated that FCV significantly improved gas exchange and maintained better lung aeration during 10 hours of ventilation, as compared to pressure controlled ventilation (PCV). Ventilation settings for...

Weber et al. Flow-controlled ventilation improves end-expiratory lung volume in obese patients – a crossover controlled interventional trial. Abstract #3315 presented at Euroanaesthesia 2019 – Manuscript submitted

The workgroup of Prof. Schumann revealed in a crossover randomized controlled trial that in morbidly obese patients FCV® better maintains end-expiratory lung volume as compared to VCV (P<0.001). The subsequent ventilation phases were applied for only 7 minutes,...

Weber et al. Flow-controlled ventilation improves oxygenation in mechanically ventilated lung-healthy patients – a crossover controlled interventional trial. Abstract #3301 presented at Euroanaesthesia 2019 – Manuscript submitted

The workgroup of Prof. Schumann revealed in a crossover randomized controlled trial in lung-healthy patients a higher efficiency of ventilation when using FCV® compared to VCV, even after short-term application. With similar ventilation settings, FCV® resulted in a...
